With cloud bombardment they seek to generate rains in San Luis Potosí to benefit agriculture

A difficult drought is the one that crosses the field of San Luis Potosítherefore, efforts to combat it have focused on the bombardment of clouds to generate rain.

Although this drought is not as intense or extreme as the one experienced by entities such as Tamaulipas or Nuevo León, the National Commission of Arid Zones (Conaza) foresees the bombardment of clouds.

The program, which seeks to generate rain in San Luis Potosí, was announced by the Secretariat of Agricultural Development and Hydraulic Resources through the head of San Luis Potosí, José Alfredo Pérez Ortiz.

The Cloud bombardment will be carried out in the areas of the Huastec municipalities of Tamuín and Ébanowhere there are important producing companies with drought problems.

The head of the agency said that the death of cattle has occurred due to the prolonged drought and high temperatures, but he did not release exact figures, since he said that the ranchers’ unions have not made a joint report.

The clouds will be bombarded with silver bromide in the altiplano region and probably the Huasteca.

Pérez Ortiz said that despite the fact that it has not rained in large areas of San Luis Potosí, “despite this, the situation is not critical to the point of neighboring states such as Nuevo León or Tamaulipas.”

He said that soon they will meet with local authorities of the municipality of Ebano to agree on the bombing program of clouds with the support of Conaza.

The cloud bombardment has been carried out in other entities, such as Chihuahua and Nuevo León “and now in our entity,” concluded Pérez Ortiz.

We recommend you read:

Cloud seeding is a form of weather manipulation. It is the attempt to change the amount or type of precipitation that falls from clouds by dispersing substances in the air that serve as cloud condensation nuclei or ice nuclei, which alter processes within the microphysics of clouds. The intention is always to increase precipitation (rain or snow).
